Description

Parsenn Derby is a three-day skiing competition for all winter sport aficionados. It all began with a local race for women and men organized at the beginning of 1920s. It‘s said to be one of the oldest ski-competitions in the world. The Derby’s length had changed over the years, now it’s about 700m. At first only individuals could compete, but the demand from skiers to have teams in the race was so high, that the organizers had to widen the competing categories. The landscape is amazing; it’s the perfect background for the event. Take it from Hans Angerer, who competed 44 times at this race, "it’s worth every effort".
